Radiotherapy and Oncology

BSc(Hons) Radiotherapy and Oncology is accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), which means you can register with them when you graduate. The course has a strong practical focus. We use evidence-based learning, simulations and highly specialised equipment, such as the Virtual Linear Accelerator (VERT) and Eclipse radiotherapy planning system to deepen your understanding and skills. Spend about half the course on placements in NHS radiotherapy departments, in a variety of environments. Engage with patients, practising radiographers and other healthcare professionals on placements, in class and online. With work-based training built-in, specialist facilities and the support of inspirational staff with a depth of experience in radiotherapy, our students are high achievers. A high proportion of UWE Bristol students graduate with first-class honours and several have been awarded Student Radiographer of the Year by the Society and College of Radiographers. Therapeutic radiographers are in demand across the UK, so there are lots of interesting career options. You could work in NHS or private radiotherapy departments, as well as specialist oncology centres. Past students have received funding through the Society of Radiographers’ Work the World programme, working and travelling in countries including Ghana, Tanzania, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Argentina. Some students choose to continue their studies by doing a postgraduate course.
